We're so happy to be having another festival year partnering with Spoonflower Fabrics. Not only is Spoonflower a crafter's dream come true (...you can design your own fabric, wallpaper, and wrapping paper, what?!), but also the company has made itself an indespensable part of the creative community. They are the go-to resource for designers and crafters all over the country, and have made quite the splash in the process. With nods from Martha Stewart, Apartment Therapy, The Today Show, and even The New York Times and Wall Street Journal, Spoonflower has revolutionized the way many people approach crafting.
About Spoonflower from their website: From their website: Spoonflower was founded in May 2008 by two Internet geeks who had crafty wives but who knew nothing about textiles. The company came about because Stephen’s wife, Kim, persuaded him that being able to print her own fabric for curtains was a really cool idea. She wasn’t alone. The Spoonflower community now numbers over half a million individuals who use their own fabric to make curtains, quilts, clothes, bags, furniture, dolls, pillows, framed artwork, costumes, banners and much, much more. The Spoonflower marketplace offers the largest collection of independent fabric designers in the world.
Like last year, Spoonflower will be hosting a DIY craft station at Indie Craft Parade. This was a huge hit last year, and I'm so thankful that they've agreed to come back. Additionally, they're co hosting with Etsy some special treats for our artists. Be sure to stop by their booth at the festival, spend a while making a project, and let them know how awesome they are.
In addition to designing or shopping for fabric on Spoonflower's site, you can also be a part of their growing community. They have an excellent blog that features their own DIY projects, contests and giveaways, tips and tricks for designing, and snapshots of Spoonflower fabrics being used across the industry.
